Windows Update Error [0x8DDD0003]

See if you find a registry value NoWindowsUpdate or DisableWindowsUpdateAccess:
key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
delete the value "NoWindowsUpdate" if it exist.

key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Windows Update
delete the value "DisableWindowsUpdateAccess" if it exist.

key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Windows Update
delete the value "DisableWindowsUpdateAccess" if it exist.

If you did any changes, log off and on again.If the above didn't help:Do a registry search (in regedit.exe, be sure to have "My Computer"selected when starting each search)) for registry values with name:
  • NoWindowsUpdate
  • DisableWindowsUpdateAccess
  • NoAutoUpdateand
delete if found.
